KUTZTOWN -

The Kutztown University baseball team got a running start out of the box this season. The Golden Bears went 4-1 at a February tournament in Virginia. KU will return to the south in the coming week as it looks to build off a 32-win season.

Chris Blum returns an experienced core of players, one that will look to lead the Golden Bears deeper into the PSAC tournament and perhaps beyond.

Kutztown will rely on its pitching and defense to win games this season.

As long as the offense continues to develop, an offense that put up some good numbers in Virginia, then it could be an exciting season at KU.
